'Scream' is to MTV as 'Dead of Summer' is to Freeform
29 June 2016 | by ezzie-95174See all my reviews

Not going to lie, but I really thought this was going to bomb. Not in reviews, but in execution. And it was surprisingly good--almost great. I watched both episodes 1 & 2, and trust me, it may have cliché' aesthetic but it puts a refreshing spin on it. It is comprised of a lot of 80s horror movie easter eggs so look out for those. It's good to see Zachary Gordon acting in something decent, and to see Tony Todd (for anyone born later in the 90s, a.k.a Candyman) on the small screen. The characters all have archetypes that we're familiar with, but with motivations the show has yet to dabble with. Not to mention I couldn't tell it was set in the 80s until I saw the ol' camcorder. So far I'm keeping this series on my recommend list. You want something dramatic, yet not overbearingly serious, (and you're not butthurt about "cliches") give this a shot.
